Lightning Asending Gen. II SAS SSD’s
Maximize Application Speed with Bandwidth for the Most Cost-effective IO Performance

Lightning Ascend™ Gen. II SAS SSDs offer superior reliability with high speed data transfer rates where quick access to data is essential. Available in 19nm eMLC, these SSDs are designed for mixed-use applications such as on-line transaction processing (OLTP) databases, email/messaging, e-commerce, virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and collaboration with a typical workload comprised of a 70/30 read/write mix.

This next generation Lightning ® SSD offers a feature-rich robust design combined with SanDisk’s innovative parallel processing architecture to deliver full data path protection (supports T10-DIF), temperature based power control, SED instant secure erase, an MTBF of 2.5 million hours and power fail protection.


Collaborative workloads include email, messaging, and groupware. These workloads, such as Microsoft® SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange®, and Linux-based groupware, allow end-users to share content and coordinate with others. SanDisk flash memory promotes ease-of-use by reducing latency and smoothing out the customer experience—even if the amount of end-user updates ebbs and peaks throughout the work day.


Email messages have become essential parts of the official “records” for businesses and organizations. They must be maintained, with accuracy, for legal and compliance purposes. In everyday business, emails are the “glue” of daily business, allowing teams in many locations to collaborate on projects. Flash storage delivers high-volume email updates safely and securely to their destinations, supporting the daily flow of business processes.

On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) Databases

  • Databases supporting online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads, such as those used inside “integrated systems,” must keep pace with large amounts of data, as they are updated throughout the day, for 24/7 operations.
  • These databases must scale and be reliable, preserving data as it is written, and recording it for later analysis and use by the business. Accuracy and data integrity are key to these workloads and to their successful deployments across the organization. Often, they serve as the “databases of record” for many important enterprise applications.
  • Lightning Ascend Gen. II SAS SSDs preserve the data and support the accuracy, reliability, and scalability of these databases as they are updated.

Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Lightning Ascend Gen. II SAS SSDs support hundreds of individual end-user “sessions” on a server instead of storing those sessions on local PCs. This approach protects enterprise data and ensures business continuity. Lightning Ascend Gen. II SAS SSDs avoid boot storms which often slow VDI response times when large numbers of end-users start up their personal-desktop applications in a VDI environment.
